Staff Profile

I’m Marc and I joined the OEM group here in Durham in March 2015. I’m originally from Stockton-on-Tees and as such I am local to the area. I first came to Durham as an undergraduate student in 2007 studying for my MPhys at Grey College. This included a fourth year project under the supervision of Prof. Andy Monkman.

After graduating in 2011 I moved down to Cambridge where I undertook my PhD in Physics at Clare College under the supervision of Prof. Neil Greenham. The title of my thesis was ‘Magnetic field effects on the triplet states in organic semiconductor devices’.

On my return to Durham I am now a research associate on the PHEBE project to investigate potential thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). This is in collaboration with Novaled, Astron Fiamm, TU Dresden and Kaunus University of Technology.

I am a supervisor in the Epiphany term long experiments for first year undergraduates.

I am also a member of University College and Grey College SCRs and in my spare time I like to take part in triathlons.
